Dr Deal has a very direct communication style. He used a minimum of technical/medical jargon which I appreciated. His explanations of the the pros and cons of the procedure were very clear. He welcomed my questions and concerns so I felt very comfortable scheduling the procedure. Office and nursing personnel are friendly yet very professional.

I have been a patient of Dr. Deal before. I was very happy to know I would be in his and his staff's care again. Everyone is very patient, attentive, and caring. Dr. Deal gives it to you straight. No misunderstandings about what path to take to be well. Tell everyone about him and his team.

Throughout the entire process of pre-surgery and post, I have felt that Dr. Deal has been guiding me through the process of having a lumpectomy. He has been extremely patient, when I have asked questions , explained how my incision will look in a few months and what to do going forward. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Dr. Deal to family or friends. He came very highly recommended to me from a very close friend. Dr. Deal performed surgery on her, due to breast Cancer.

To me Dr. Deal is a rare combination of a skilled surgeon and a real person. So many specialists only see a leg, breast or knee walk into the office; he understands that body part comes wrapped in a package of a real person with a name.

Dr. Deal performed my emergency surgery. He was friendly and positive, and he clearly explained what he would be doing (pre-surgery) and what he did (post-surgery). He informed me before the surgery that he had performed the surgery I needed a high number of times, and that was comforting.

I am a new patient, and could not have been more pleased. I found Dr. Deal to be warm, kind, straightforward and professional. He has all of the qualities that one could hope to find in a physician. I was feeling somewhat anxious about the surgery, but he put me at ease and dispelled my fears. I have complete confidence in him.

Dr. Deal performed my breast cancer surgery, and there is none better! He is competent, caring, and friendly. My scar is barely visible, and the follow-up has been quite thorough. You do not have to choose between surgical skills and bedside manner with Dr. Deal! He takes ample time to answer questions and address concerns. His nurse, Linda, and his nurse practitioner, Susan, and the office staff are also excellent! The newer location in the Sarah Cannon building is beautiful, and parking is convenient. Most highly recommended!
